The Cloud 9 trail has some great glade opportunities... take the Skyline Express chair to Belle's Camp, and follow the signs for the Cloud 9 trail. A real gem at Vail...

It's easy to get ahead of the crowd on a powder day over at Blue Sky. Try steep and deep or lovers leap

This was the first time we've made it over to Blue Sky, and I wish we had made it here sooner! This is a must-do for Vail....

It takes awhile to get over to Blue Sky Basin from Lions Head but it is worth it. We were there on a Post Card Blue day and the view was amazing. Had lunch that a friend grilled out side and we enjoyed inside by the fire. That was wonderful. I like the runs, they were groomed.. no powder that... More

Highly recommend for all intermediate to extreme skiers. We had three kids with us (14, 12, & 7) & they loved Blue Sky Basin as much as we did. There was plenty to do here to fill up 2 solid days. In & out of the trees w/the kids was a blast. Get to Belles Camp early to get a... More

It may take some time to get over to Blue Sky Basin but it is well worth it! Be sure and check out the views from the back side of Belle's cabin and grab a hot dog and a beer at the Dawg House just past Pete's lift!
